My assessment is this, a moderator has threatened to ban members simply because they don't agree with the members bashing of Bruce Arians. Well that's fine, they don't have to agree, to each his/her own. I didn't see any "flaming". I mean 2 members called each other a silly name but that was a two-way street. Did either of them lodge a complaint? I doubt it. Heck I was once called "flatfoot" in this forum, which by the way, I found to be very humerous, but in reality that should have been construed as "flaming". No action was taken against that member.

But then, on the other hand, a moderator, who is always quick to defend Arians, has attempted to take the blame away from Arians by criticizing the offensive linemen, see post #89. Well what if some of us like the offensive linemen and we take exception to the remarks? Do we have the authority to threaten the moderator with banishment simply because we disagree with the moderators' criticism of the offensive linemen?

No, of course not, and why would we. Although I may disagree, I still respect the other persons perspective and I would never abuse my authority by threatening to ban members that disagree with me.

If that is the case, and the moderators have the authority to ban anyone that they disagree with, then I request that you give me a lifetime ban PRONTO!
As HTG said, we don't really owe you an explanation, but she gave you one anyway. If you have a problem with it, take it up with the board owner.

Thanks NCSteeler, I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who's witnessing this.

I didn't ask you or anyone else for an explanation. I simply provided interested parties with my explanation. Move along now.

Love the way folks around here who "think" they know what's going on in the forefront and the background jump to conclusions and call others out over them.

We could all do that, but then again, we all don't have the big "forum police badge" to hide behind.

Why don't you take your own advice already?
